A couple drove down Ondekkers road when they experienced car trouble and their vehicle broke down.
They discovered that a clamp had broke and water spewed out all over the place.
Fortunately, a kind stranger noticed that they needed help and stopped his car to assist.
The stranger, Anton Oosthuisen, quickly identified the source of the problem and drove away to purchase the relevant part.
He returned with the necessary clamp and 1.5 litre of still water.
Oosthuisen fixed the problem and the car was back on the road.
When offered compensation, Oosthuisen refused, but requested that the couple "pay it forward" instead.
